Lol Bet I know all about dog hair ....the one thing that is most miserable in dog care.

I watched a fair amount today but saw nothing remarkable. Mom is a real homebody and should start laying soon. Dad is a peach and a homebody too....love this pair! The weather....not so much.Grin

Ps I love your heart!
Also:
I must remember to sign out tonight. Green LOL

Good morning.

5:36 a.m.
Not a great day for weather -- wet and dreary and forecast to be this way all week.
I was wondering if we would see Mom on the nest with an egg this morning but the nest is empty. If she can avoid laying this week when it's so cold and miserable I won't be in the least disappointed.

6:13 a.m.
The first to arrive this morning is Dad who immediately began fluffing the nest bowl. He flew off 2 minutes later.

6:44 a.m.
Dad returned with a stick. No sign of Mom yet this morning but Dad is determined to make sure this nest is ready for eggs.
Now that the cam is in colour it's easy to see how wet it is.

6:46 a.m.
He is off again.

7:08 a.m.
Mom arrived and Dad of course took the opportunity to mate with her immediately and left again.

7:27 am
Dad has been bringing in more nesting material.
Mom flew off and he left a minute later.

7:33 a.m.
Poor Mom never gets a break. No wonder she delays coming home early in the morning.

Snow is blowing sideways

The snow is sticking in South Calgary this morning....sigh Ospreys must be scratching their heads at the weather.
Not sure if this was posted. Glad our Osprey can't read !

That is good news Janet. That should leave a good supply of fish for Mom and Dad.

9:50 a.m.
I wish Mom would find a more sheltered place to perch but I guess that's not possible either when the leaves haven't opened on the trees yet.

Good morning everyone wave ....
Although a snowy 1C Monday morning near the last of April probably doesn't qualify for the label "Good".

10:40 am I missed Dad's entrance but he is on the nest with Mom now..they are both looking around.

The whirling disease isn't good news either Janet and hopefully won't decimate our wonderful fish supply.

On a happier note an egg has arrived at the Dunrovin nest and I am sure ours won't be far behind. Grin

10:50 am Mom continues to stand riverside with a few flakes still falling around her.

Good afternoon JD

12:44 pm
Both adults home at the moment and nice to see the snow is gone again.... and now Dad has flown off.

Dad arrived home again and instead of mating he just stood on Mom and admired the view at the zoo. He stood on her for a good 30 seconds.
